But Sevilla also has a number of interesting museums, such as the Flamenco Museum. You could take a tour of the bullring La Real Maestranza. Bullfighting will not be enaveryone’s taste, but it is an important aspect of Spanish culture. You can also enjoy life in the narrow streets, squares and bars. It buzzes until late at night…
